So I certainly love mixed breeds but today is National Pure Bred Dog Day and I am an unabashed fan of pure bred dogs. I love the variety, the history, and the commitment of the pure bred dog world. I love that people can find a dog that matches their life style. I'm very happy with my pugs and my bulldog. I'm very greatful to the reputable breeders, they are out there, who work to better the breeds I love. Reputable breeders where the driving force in the research that identified genetic markers for the terrible disease PDE that is the nightmare of every pug owner. Now breeders can screen their dogs and help prevent this terrible disease.
As readers of this blog know we recently lost our dear Tubby at the age of 14. In a few months time we will likely add another pup to our home and it will most likely be a pure bred. Probably a pug or maybe a toy poodle, two breeds that match our home perfectly.
If like me you love pure bred dogs then celebrate today. Post pictures of your pups on Twitter and Instagram and use #ilovemypurebreddog
